Michael Phelps’ most impressive gold medal at the 2016 Olympics has nothing to do with his swimming abilities. It’s all about his angry face.
Yup. Right before the 200 meter butterfly semifinals, Phelps was filmed making a series of bizarre, angry faces as one of his competitors, South Africa’s Chad Lee Clos, danced/warmed up in front of him. The sheer rage/frustration/constipation on Phelps’ face has turned into Internet fodder. And in 2016, that means memes. So many memes.
.@MichaelPhelps is not impressed with Chad le Clos's antics.
